Billy began his consulting career with Andersen Consulting in 1980 and thereafter founded his own technology consultancy company, which merged with VISION Computing in 1988 to create the VISION Group. Billy became VISION’s CEO in 1989.
Billy went on to grow VISION by 25% a year during the 1990s, developing it from a small Irish software company to an international technology and management consulting company with the ability to reshape industries. VISION now regularly competes with Accenture, CGEY and Deloitte.
While Billy oversees VISION’s impressive national and international client portfolio, he has interests in financial services, manufacturing, telecommunications and media domains. The Intelligent Finance project in Scotland saw VISION under the stewardship of Billy, build a full-service Internet bank in less than a year, which went on in the following 12 months to capture 9.2% of the UK mortgage market.
VISION’s success at CEMEX in Mexico where it dramatically improved business efficiencies led that company’s CIO to state:
“They have solved for the human processes what Taylor and Ford did for manufacturing.”
